| Synopsis |

From the heartbreaking, uplifting and bestselling Amanda Prowse, this is an unforgettable romance about what happens when two very different people fall in love.

There are two sides to every love story. This is Anna’s.

Anna Cole grew up poor, but her mother’s love made her feel rich every day. Then her mother died, and Anna was sent to a care home. As a teenager, Anna vowed that one day, she would have children of her own, and create the happy, noisy family life she always craved.

Then, one day, Anna meets Theo Montgomery in a lift. Theo has kind eyes, but a sad past. His family were rich, but his childhood was full of neglect. Theo can’t imagine bringing a child into this cruel world, but he does want a soulmate. Someone to love him unconditionally; someone with whom he can share his family’s wealth.

Theo and Anna are two damaged souls, from two different worlds. Is their love for each other enough to let go of the pain of their pasts? Or will Anna and Theo break each others’ hearts?

| Review|

 

I love the idea of having a story split into two books. A love story told by both the main characters, in this case, Anna and Theo.  I read Anna in one sitting and it really was like a movie, which if you have a read my previous reviews is a very good sign. We follow Anna from when she was a little girl, we get to travel with her as she grows and we see the harsh events that in turn shaped who she is as an adult. We know all her secrets and fears.  

Amanda Prowse is unique in her writing style as she cuts out the noise. Often when I am reading women’s fiction I have to read through pages of drivel just to get to the point of the story.  With Anna, I was aware whilst reading that everything was important and there was no wasted time on side stories or tangents on unnecessary nonsense. The beautiful writing and engaging plot filled up my senses, I cried with Anna ( a lot) and felt emotionally spent by the end of the book. But in a good way, it was like therapy without the hefty fee. The way Amanda Prowse creates her characters is out of this world. I see them all now in my mind, even those that were in Anna’s life for a short time, they are all so alive and vivid. It’s down to excellent descriptions and attention to little details.  

I am an emotional reader, I need to care about who I am reading about and by gosh I really did with Anna.  In the book we too meet Theo, he is unique with his own story of course. We get slivers throughout Anna’s story about his background. Enough to make the reader, intrigued and I desperately need to know why he is the way he is.  I found him endearing one moment and incredibly selfish the next.

This was my first experience of Amanda Prowse’s work and I am delighted that I have a plethora of her other books to dive into.

Amanda Prowse takes us on an emotional journey of self-discovery with Anna. Jump into this adventure with gusto, you will not be disappointed.
